Captain America: Winter Soldier Super Bowl trailer kicks off the big game

captain america winter soldier super bowl trailer captin

The latest trailer for Captain America: Winter Soldier kicked off an evening of multi-million dollar advertisements and trailers for movies that cost more to make than the gross national product of a mid-sized nation. There’s going to be some football too. 

The new two-and-a-half minute peek at Marvel Studios’ April 4 release shows off a bunch of new stuff. You can see Black Widow’s new hairdo (ever notice how it changes in every movie?), Winter Soldier’s robo-arm, Falcon swooping around like a boss, and Cap beating the crap out of an elevator full of dudes in suits.

Marvel already planning a third Captain America film

Although Captain America: The Winter Soldier won’t hit theaters until April 4, Marvel Studios seems to have enough faith in the film to both move ahead with a third, and bring back the 2014 film’s directors, according to a report from Variety. Marvel has yet to officially confirm a third Captain America film is in the works (and it likely won't for a while), but The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo have reportedly been approached to return to the franchise to helm the next film in the series.
The studio and the directors won’t actually begin negotiations until Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters (and is presumably deemed a financial success). It does, however, show a remarkable amount of confidence, both in the Russo brothers and in the film itself.
The majority of the stars that appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier are signed on for at least three films or more, so casting shouldn't be an issue. Marvel hasn’t gotten to the point where it is looking to hire writers, but Marvel and the Russos are said to be discussing a general outline for the story of the third film. As with the other Captain America films, Kevin Feige will produce and Chris Evans will star.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier marks only the fourth feature film the Russos have directed since 1997. The brothers have directed several TV shows though, both as a team and individually. The film is based on the Eisner Award-winning writer Ed Brubaker's run in the comics, which introduced the complicated character of the Winter Soldier. Explaining more about the character would be a spoiler, but the film will continue to build on what we’ve seen of Cap so far, both in his solo movie and The Avengers.
A date hasn’t been mentioned for the third Captain America film, but Marvel has already staked out May 6, 2016, and May 5, 2017 for two as-yet-unnamed films.

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ trailer has exactly what you want
a look at the state of all marvel movies currently in development winter soldier

As first looks go, the latest trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is pretty much exactly what a fan would want to see. Plenty of Cap (Chris Evans), plenty of Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford doing their S.H.I.E.L.D. thing, some banter with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and the launching of a full-blown fleet of Helicarriers. There's even a brief snippet of the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) taking flight and a bunch of freeze frame-worthy Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) moments.
The story in Winter Soldier picks up two years after the events of The Avengers, with Steve Rogers making a go of trying to live on as a man out of time. Of course, that would make for a pretty boring action movie, so it's not long before terrible things happen and Cap must suit up once more. Marvel Studios hasn't been very forthcoming about the plot for this one, though fans of the comics may have some ideas based on the film's title and main characters.
The Marvel movies haven't mirrored the comic book stories directly, but they draw a lot of inspiration from the printed page. Anyone familiar with how Winter Soldier fits into Captain America's story in recent years... well... this second big-screen solo outing for the Captain promises to be a significant one. Check out the UK trailer below and the North American trailer on iTunes Movie Trailers; Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters on April 4, 2014.

Captain America: Super Soldier Review
captain america super soldier review

I'm not mad at Captain America: Super Soldier, I’m just disappointed. It isn’t like I expect all that much of video game adaptations of movies — I did play Thor: God of Thunder after all — but with Captain America you can see the frameworks of a good game there, but it just never comes together.
Captain America: Super Soldier isn’t a terrible game. You won’t wander aimlessly through generic caves (looking at you, Thor), nor will you be forced to save the same five citizens in the same way hundreds of times (that one is for you, all the Spider-Man movie games). There is a kinda fun brawler buried beneath the glitches and inability to step over a rail.
It is hard to really blame developer Next Level Games and publisher Sega, at least not entirely. The obvious issue with this game is just that it didn’t have enough time. If it had another year, or maybe just six months, this game could have been very good. Instead, it is just kinda meh.
That being said, there is still some fun to be gained from this game. For fans of Cap, it may be worth slogging through the somewhat bland levels with your one attack button and often sluggish controls in order to have the thrill of chucking your shield right in the face of Ratzi scum, and putting foot to ass for America and freedom and puppies or whatever.
